Two 6mm Allen bolts going into captive nuts on the pipe, then 2 13mm bolts...

    I bought this car almost one year ago. Previous owner told me that DPF was drilled, but ECU needs new remap because of "Anti Pollution Filter clogged" warning on dash and also EGR was blanked (MES shows 3,998% open or something). Car run perfectly without any problems. A few months later I...
  15. Menu function not working Brera 2006

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I just bought a beautiful Beta 2.2 JTS and unfortunately, the menu isn't usable on the light stalk. With the ignition off or on, there are only options to set the speed limiter, dim the display and exit the menu. However, even these are not accessible since the system just cycles through them...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Why has our 159 turned into tractor ? Engine is so rattly it's beyond belief....coming from the main engine block...no loss of power...no engine management lights...just very embarrassing. Read up on hydraulic lifters and stuck in Wynns additive yesterday to see if it made a difference....I...
